A friend of mine who lives in the UK made a fruit pie for dessert on Sunday he posted a picture of the pie with this stuff poured over it.
What is it?
Looks like custard to me. The Brits LOVE their custard with everything.
And yes, over there it can be thick and creamy or runny and thin. They pour it over a lot of desserts.
probably a sauce or glaze or some sort. i
Looks to me like lemon curd.
It is custard. Brits LOVE custard.
It's custard, and I'm amazed that everyone who has posted so far has only ever come across custard made from custard powder. It's far better made with eggs milk sugar and vanilla.

Custard made with milk, vanilla and cornflour.

Crème anglaise. It's custard, like a vanilla sauce.

Custard. It is a very sweet sauce, made from cornflour with vanilla flavour, coloured with annatto and made with milk and sugar. It is normally eaten hot but can be used cold with summer desserts.
